The governing Liberals at Queen’s Park are recognizing there is a significant tax benefit in partnering with Airbnb to launch a new pilot project.
A government release says the pilot project will raise awareness about the rights of homeowner and consumers, and responsibilities when offering or booking online accommodations. Airbnb will also educate its hosts through an email notification during tax season to remind them of their tax obligations.
Airbnb is a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique accommodations around the world, online or from a mobile phone or tablet. There are currently more than 11,000 hosts in Ontario who list their properties on Airbnb.
